Computer Freezes at Memory Test
Posted on 2008-11-04
I have a computer that in the last year I have completely revamped. I bought a new Motherboard (Gigabyte K8M800), processor, ram, and video card, ect. I recently went out of town and shut down my computer before leaving. I returned home and turned my computer on and it froze immediately at the Memory Test. I figured bad MB so I bought a new one 2 days ago had it shipped and same problem. I made sure it matched my processor (AMD ATHLON 64 754 pin Processor) and my Video card which I just purchased a month ago. I installed it into my machine and it went farther this time than it did with the Gigabyte. On the Gigabyte it would say everything right up to the memory test and stopping cutting the words Memory test off at Memor. The new MB Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS 754 SiS 755 ATX AMD Motherboard will load and go just a bit farther. The wierd thing is they both boot and say 512 MB Ram (Not sure if it matches my VC or what but thats whats in my VC) and it says at the Memory test that I have 1024 MB of memory when I have just 1 stick of 256k ram in there. (I have 2 512MB Kingston Ram sticks that I thought might be bad so tried these out). I am clearly perplexed by this situation. I am very technical suavy when it comes to computers and this blows anything I have seen out of hte water. PLEASE HELP!!!
